I stayed in a ground level suite with a lovely courtyard, quiet clean and just a nice stopover before heading to Byron. Overall room clean basic essentials could do with some updating in the rooms, my room had parking spot right outside the door so convenient if you have a car.

Only stayed for one night here but found the staff to be fine and the room to be of a good size. Our room appeared to have had a recent renovation including the bathroom. Our bed was comfortable and it was a quiet place to stay. Nothing flash but presented as the best budget hotel in Ballina.

This was a return visit to this hotel. Was better than the first! The rooms are spacious, spotless and very comfortable. Everything we needed for an overnight stopover but would be an ideal place for a few days as it is very reasonably priced. We had thought of trying a more "upmarket" hotel and glad we didn't!

The Motel was in a quiet street not far from the main shopping area. The staff were very pleasant and the room was spacious and clean. The room we had was self contained and we could sit out the back on the table and chairs provided amongst the greenery.

I recently booked the homestead motel online after reading the positive reviews on tripadvisor. As I only required one night in Ballina I decided that a budget motel would do. I booked with bookings.com and of course didn't read any fine print. I went to cancel my stay approximately 30 hours before my trip as I could stay with friends... More

The service was the first positive experience - from the first phone call, to arrival and departure - all great! Arrival saw undercover parking found for our boat 'in case of rain' - which it did, and a showing of our room to make sure we were happy. Wow! Our ground floor room opened onto the garden. It had a... More
